David Slater (born November 22, 1962) is an American singer.


Slater was the Male Vocalist champion on TV's Star Search in 1987. Slater then signed a recording contract with Capitol Records and launched a country music career. He released two albums on Capitol in the late 1980s, entitled Exchange Of Hearts and Be With Me. Both albums were produced by Randy Scruggs. Several of Slater's radio singles including "I'm Still Your Fool" and "The Other Guy" reached the top 40 on Billboard and other charts.[1] Notable backup singers on Slater's Capitol albums include Vince Gill and members of Australia's rock group, Little River Band.

Slater now performs regularly as a singer and piano player. In addition to his own music he performs covers of pop songs by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and others; releasing these in 2005 on his Nice and Easy album, and on his 2013 album, "As Time Goes By."
